Ah the lovely Aoife nails it once again….
With reference to the above nonsense .
“Feat of honesty”?
“Caitlyn has no lies”?
How the actual fuck is going through mutilating yet incomplete (still has a penis) surgery, wearing more face paint than most actual females own , taking more hormones than actual females produce, posing in a satin bustier and panties and being totally pornified, NOT TO MENTION PHOTOSHOP, honesty?
Tell me that people, tell me that!
That’s just a misogynist pornographer’s simulacrum of a woman and when you analyse it, deeply insulting to actual women.
Summed up perfectly in the timing, guaranteed to top trump HIS OWN DAUGHTER’S pregnancy announcement.
And , I bet, darling liberals, y’all think that just fine and Kim should suck it up for the sisterhood.
What a wanker.
Oh, and any right wing gender essentialist or liberal fuckwit agreeing with any of what I said can do one.
I’m a radfem with a daughter and I’d prefer her to have the likes of Marie Curie for a role model, not some porn sick publicity addict like Jenner or any Kardashian (come ON people, and I the only one thinking fame through sex tapes is more than a tad reflective of a a deeply faulty society?)and I’d certainly prefer her to have realistic body ideals, not the ones currently promoted that are;
1. Straight from playboy,
2. Only achievable via aforementioned surgery, cosmetics, Corsetry and photoshop.
Another male telling us what a woman “is”. How original.
Seriously, unless you can get inside someone’s head then their existence is about a LOT more than your “feelings”.
Especially if you’ve never had the socialisations, restrictions and oppressions , not to mention biological realities – of that class you “identify” as.
Try identifying as black and see how much applause you get.
I feel like a person.
And transubstantiation is still mataphysics.
Alice Eve was right*. And she shouldn’t have had to chicken out and retract. All the privilege and riches that afforded him his transition was garnered when he was (still is) male, and erasing that fact ain’t feminism.
And NEWSFLASH people, you cannot actually identify yourself out of who you are, no matter what you’re wearing, how you’re acting, what drugs you take .
You will will always be you.
If you’re a schmuck no amount of Dior will change that.
